    I worked at Just Energy as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Its fun at times
    you'll definitely get a work out
    everyone is friendly and cool

    Cons

    Its a door to door job
    You're working no matter what the weather
    they say youre getting paid 15-18 an hour but its all comission
    very hard to make sales
    you work from Monday to Saturday 10 am-11pm and you HAVE to go out out of the city one to two weeks out of every month and you pay for your own expenses so if you're new and have no money you're pretty much screwed,
    you deal with alot of crazy homeowners, you'll get guns pulled on you,
    the company doesn't eben have permits so you'll get kicked out of neighborhoods alot and deal with cops alot

    Pros

    Great pay, Social Customer Service, Travel

    Cons

    Door to Door Sales, sometimes to are stuck Driving the Van, Pay Check comes from Canada Company Not American at all. They dont take out for Federal and State Taxes in the end of the year income tax u have to pay back. Note if u are Just Energy please Start having the Local Company in the USA do Pay Check not over the border in Canada

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Management Just no an American Company it is not right and should be paid in America by American Companies not Over the Border in Canada

    I worked at Just Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall the company leadership cares for employees with good salaries and decent benefits.
    There are a lot of opportunities as the Company is growing and looking into new product lines.

    Cons

    The structure of the sales force is extremely expensive which leads to high priced products that are not competitive. The Company uses questionable sales tactics to push these high priced products on customers who do not fully understand what they are signing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reevaluate the sales model to provide competitive products that can benefit a customer. There are very few gas or electric products that provide a value to customers. The variable rate products cause rate shock once the customer is past the discount months.

    In need of a better strategy

    I worked at Just Energy

    Pros

    Working with everyone was definitely a plus. You do need to have a strong background in sales with the ability to close deals.

    Cons

    There is a little thing called working permits for each city you go door to door in. You will get tickets if the police are called. You do not get to turn them into the office for reimbursement and it is a misdemeanor that goes on your record. The areas that they do pick to work in have already been knocked by our company (different teams) or by competitors. It also is the reason people get annoyed and call the police.

    Pros

    Absolutely none, unless you want to loose all your skills and and guarantee that your resume will become unattractive. It's a cheesy utilities company where CEOs have no clue how to act or run it. Very unprofessional environment. Backstabbing and butt kissing is a must to survive. Do not bother

    Cons

    Everything listed above. You are waisting your time. Cons are the fact I listed above in the pros which are non- existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dress professional and act like CEOs as well. Treat people with respect and don't reward backstabbers. That's not coaching. Your more ales are atrocious
